By Janet Plisevich
Besides collecting lighthouse memorabilia, Bill Plisevich has an extensive classic and antique car collection. For weeks he had been looking forward to attending a swap meet in Randolph, Ohio to find a few much-needed parts for a few of his cars. He left very disappointed, with only a set of lug nuts. On his way back home with unspent money in his pocket, he decided to pull in to an antique store. He usually checks this store every month or two for vintage signs and automobilia. Never in his wildest dreams did he expect what he would find. Just newly unloaded and not even inventoried yet, was an old and original Fresnel lens. He asked how much it was. $375. He never looked back!
